My family was in Cabo for a family wedding and we wanted to fish during our stay. None of us had been deep sea fishing more than twice before. The timing was good, as the big tournaments were about to start in mid Oct., and the fish reports had been good. I did some quick research and settled on RedRum from the posts I had seen here. They had an opening on a day that would work with the size & price boat we wanted. From the moment I called and spoke to John several weeks before the trip to when we stepped off the El Nuevo after our day long adventure...everything was top notch. There were 4 of us on the boat and Alex (captain) and Jesus had us fishing by 7am and a Dorado on the line by 7:30, I think. We caught all 5 of our Dorado before 10am. Late morning we had a lull in action for about 2 hours but during this time Jesus NEVER stopped working, changing out lures and live bait to try to catch fish. We also saw too many dolphins to count and they swam with us for about an hour. We also saw a blue whale, sea turtles and flying fish, which was all great. The El Nuevo is a beautiful boat, VERY clean & great views from the captain's perch. About when our Dramamine was getting the best of us (sleepy time) that's when Alex spotted a striped marlin. He turned the boat, Jesus threw out the line to lure him with the live bait and hooked him. Things happened fast and the next 30 min my Dad spent bringing in the 160lb marlin. Beautiful fish and the guys worked very hard all day to make our trip a great one. We did come across a blue marlin later, but were unable to get it in the boat. We happily practiced catch and release on our trip. This day was a memorable one and RedRum is truly a first class operation. Their website answers all your questions before your trip and the RedRum family is happy to assist personally if it doesn't. A++ on service, equipment, value, friendliness and professional. Lastly, Alex and Jesus (El Nuevo boat) are hard working, friendly and great at what they do!! Thank you for a wonderful experience!
